Cellulite is a common condition that causes the skin to look lumpy. It’s normally found around a woman’s highs, hips, tummy and bottom, and the causes aren’t completely understood.
However, some experts believe it is formed after a muscle breaks or is stretched and pulled down causing fat cells to push up and give that horrible blotchy bumpy complexion under your skin.
People of all sizes can suffer with cellulite, in fact between 80-90% of women have it, but if you’re overweight it may be more noticeable.
The good news is, cellulite doesn’t have to be forever! Here are 6 easy ways to get rid of it and help it stay away and bring back your beautiful, smooth, flawless skin…
6 top tips to help banish cellulite
1. Drink more water
Water has so many benefits. It can help boost your metabolism but it also keeps you hydrated and this is important when it comes to cellulite, because it helps make your skin look smoother.
Think of a balloon. When it’s half empty, it can appear shrivelled and blotchy but when it’s blown up the surface is smooth. This is also how your skin works.
2. Cut out salt
Fast food and junk food have a high salt intake, that’s what makes them so addictive. Salt can cause fat cells to swell and also cause your skin to shrivel – think of the balloon!
If you have a healthier diet that’s packed with fruits and veggies then you’re less likely to have too much sodium in your diet and this can massively help reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin.
3. Use a body brush
Body brushes are a great way of improving the circulation of your body and breaking down cellulite to help give it a smoother appearance.
The easiest way to remember to brush your body is to do it in the shower or before you get dressed each morning.
4. Increase collagen intake
Besides keeping your skin healthy and glowing, collagen improves skin elasticity, skin moisture, water loss (dryness), firmness and skin roughness. Improving your skin’s elasticity through collagen helps reduce that dimpling on your skin known as cellulite.

Like junk food, coffee, alcohol and tobacco can also cause your body to feel dehydrated and make your skin seem dry and shrivelled.
